Traded my Volvo XC 70 for the Crosstour and never looked back. I researched AWD wagons and crossovers and this was the clear winner. The crosstour is superior to the Volvo (and numerous luxury SUVS) in comfort, reliability, ease of maintenance and great looks. Despite the absence of a turbo, there is plenty of power and responsiveness. Plenty of cargo space - my German shepherd fits in the car very nicely. The interior envelops you and is extremely quiet. This is the car I have been waiting a long time for and finally found.
comfortable seats w/ excellent lumbar support, AWD, uses regular fuel, rides smoothly and handles beautifully - agile and responsive, love the hidden storage compartments in back
Definitely a struggle with rear visibility - a GPS screen with rear vision should be required. I am surprised it passed US safety standards
